I'm not an educated man when it comes to foofoos and not sure exactly what parts you need, but jwboon has foofoo parts, if you're in Europe or have a contact there.

I have a 76 and 75 engine so know nothing about foofoo valves. I do however have access to Boons. I have some parts to buy from them for my project, that i can't find anywhere else over here, but my list hasn't reached their minimum order amount yet. Happy to add foofoo parts to an order then ship them on. Have a look at https://www.jwboon.com/ and let me know if I can help.
Paul

Be thankful you dont know what a foo foo is. That means you dont need one I never thought I'd say "foo foo" when talking about motorcycles. Sounds like something you would say when talking about poodles or something.

It is the sound they make when they malfunction, usually from accumulation too much general motorcycle filth [lack of maintenance ]. I personally suffered this malady, but it was with my 1980, with the internal foofoo. It is a funny, funny sound.
